Balochistan Assembly Speaker Rahila Hameed Khan Durrani has said that Pakistan is a beautiful country and in order to strengthen and develop it every person will have to put in extra effort because our existence depends on it.

“The world should recognise and accept the exemplary sacrifices of the Pakistan Army and the masses rendered in the war on terror,” said the speaker while addressing a sports event in connection with the Spring Festival organised by the Government Girls Degree College Kehwari Road Quetta on Tuesday.
